I explored the Jewish New Year, or Rosh Hashanah, and attempted to demonstrate some shofar blasts and their meanings. We had some difficulty with sound in this video.

On September 29, 2019 at the First Church Unitarian, Littleton, MA, we had a “Unitarian Universalist Appreciation of Rosh Hashanah”. Together, we learned a few things about this important Jewish holiday and a few of its traditions. Here you will see a bit about the shofar and hear some brief remarks I made, ending with an excerpt (just the very beginning and ending) of a ritual inspired by the Jewish tradition of Tashlich, or “casting”.
